The Australian Communications and Media Authority confirmed yesterday it had received a complaint that the betting site 888sport was in breach of the Integrated Gambling Act.
The spokesman, who would not say who raised the objection, said: "We have had one complaint and our investigation is ongoing. However, we have not closed down the site." He would not comment further.
Yesterday morning, it was up and running and taking bets on races in Victoria and NSW. By afternoon the site suddenly went offline. It stated the service was temporarily unavailable.
The company believed to be owned by 888 Holdings PLC, which is listed on the London Stock Exchange - by phone and email. A customer service spokesman said: "We are temporarily unavailable. That's all I know." Asked if the problem was software-related, the spokesman said: "Don't know. We have been told to just say the service is temporarily unavailable."

As I started to write this comment I heard the loungeroom clock go "CUCKOO"....hmm. Be about right.
IT is a pity we cannot sue the ass of those who create inconveniences within ones personal time, particularly when it involves petty irritating situations.
Due to a tailender on my Ford Falcon St/Wagon last Oct created by an ethnic Italian plumber coming up behind me at traffic lights when I had stopped.
Three return visits to the repairer in all 80 kms and time wasting before the damage was fixed apparently. But not as such it would appear, as this would be due to a sighting of the left hand concealment panel on the tailgate leaving the car at speed whilst traveling the F3 Freeway at 70mph(110 k's) recently.
Insurers Questions. How did it become removed? Did you remove it? Did you see it being removed? Where is the panel now. Oh dear oh dear , do these guys ever listen. one could do better talking to a rocking horse.
Have a normal day, Vest.
